UNESCO World Heritage

The City of Bath is one of the earliest and most influential ‘Great Spas’. From a medieval walled city clustered around hot springs, the grand ‘Georgian Spa’ was created during the eighteenth century when frequently visited by Royalty and high aristocracy. Bath doctors pioneered diagnostic medicine, and the surrounding landscape was managed as part of ‘the cure’.
